Boom Trucks for the Roofing Industry
Boom trucks are ideal when you need to hoist materials to rooftops at heights of 100 feet and more.
“We own two National Crane stick boom cranes that we use for our commercial and larger shingle jobs. We prefer the stick boom cranes over our knucklebooms because of their tremendous lifting capacity and reach. National Crane has one of the strongest cranes in the marketplace and specializes in stick boom cranes. I’ve recommended both Runnion and National Crane to my colleagues when they ask me where to go to purchase their machines.”
Outstanding Service Work
“Runnion’s service work is not just pretty good, it’s excellent. When I take a crane in for its annual inspection I get a written report of what has to be done, what they would recommend, and estimates on the suggested repairs. I’ve got a budget to deal with, and if there is something way out of whack they will call me and discuss the issue and the costs. There are four major crane suppliers in and around Chicago, and they are by far number one.”
Runnion Keeps You Running
“A few years ago we were delivering a building on North Avenue just west of Harlem. It was early in the morning because we were going to have to block the curb lane. Turns out, our crane broke down and was blocking traffic on North Avenue all the way past Oak Park Avenue, about a mile away. We called Runnion, and they were over there in about 40 minutes and had our machine up and running in about 45 minutes. Runnion knows when I need something badly, so they’re very good about helping out quickly.”
